Gasol Wants to Play in Euro Championships

by August 12, 2009

According to Pau, a finger injury isn’t enough to keep him out of Team Spain’s lineup once the tourney begins next month: “I am not overly worried as it isn’t a very serious injury and in three weeks I expect to be back doing practically everything,’ Gasol said. ‘I have explained the situation to the Lakers, and they have the results. They aren’t pleased I am injured, but I don’t think they’ll put obstacles in my way. I am making sure the lines of communication with them are open and clear and hope I won’t have to travel over there. My wish is to be with the team and to enjoy Eurobasket.”‘
